Hypothetically, if it were possible, what would you suggest for purchase?

A new, <10 miles, 2017 Volt Premier with Adaptive Cruise Control for $34k + tax, tag etc. but before fed and state incentives.


A 2014 ELR with Nav and Adaptive Cruise Control with 8k miles, that's an MSO so it qualifies for the Fed and State tax credits and rebates for $33k + tax, tags etc., but before fed and state incentives.

I never heard of an ELR until I started reading this forum. After months of reading about the Volt, I started reading about the ELR. I don't think I've ever seen one in person, I'm not a Cadillac fan. But after reading all the raves about it, I think I want one over a Volt.

I've read that some people have found old left over MSO 2014's so I'm curious as to what people think.

Thanks in advance.

I guess if you don't need the extra cargo space go with the ELR, but be warned, it requires premium gas and a much shorter overall range than the gen2 Volt. ELR=37mi electric 300mi overall vs. gen2 Volt=53mi electric and 420mi overall (on reg gas to boot!). Plus you'll pay more for tires in the ELR 20" vs. 17" in the Volt. You'll save more money overall with the gen2 Volt, but I guess if you've got the money and sportiness is the most important factor, then the ELR is a clear winner.
